Distressed off the news of Jeffrey, Jenna enters her home to find Holly there but doesn't suspect she's there for anything other than a visit. Buzz comes home and Holly must retreat without the magazine with the nursery rhyme in it. Buzz tries to talk Jenna into making some very romantic plans -- namely, taking Coop and Rocky and leaving Springfield for a South Seas sailing adventure. Jenna doesn't want to run away from Jeffrey, but Buzz assures her that's not the only thing driving him, he just thinks it's the perfect time. Jenna happily agrees and Buzz rushes off to make all the arrangements. Holly returns for the magazine and as both women reach for it, the nursery rhyme falls out. Jenna reads it. Teri goes to Josh and commands him to derail Reva from her crazy idea that Annie's alive. Teri can't help giving into her intense feelings for Josh as she tells him it's OK to remember how he felt about Annie and to feel that way about Teri. Later, Reva is stunned when Josh forbids her to continue the search for Annie. Hart vows to stick by Dinah no matter what, while Teri tells Dinah she wishes Josh looked at her the way Hart does Dinah. Alex lashes out at Vicky for not being more like her mother and makes it clear that her respect and trust is something Vicky must earn.
